    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning October 6-Plot Outline: On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two friends (Handley and Bomer) and their girlfriends (Baird and Brewster) get into an accident that calls their local sheriff (Ermey) to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.

    (i'd say it has 90% chance of be'ing good)

The supernatural force, which fills a person with rage before spreading to its next victim, brings together a group of previously unrelated people who attempt to unlock its secret to save their lives.

    (i'd say it has a 50-50 chance of be'ing good)

    The Marine October 13Plot Outline: A Marine returns from battle to find that his wife is ensnared in a kidnapping plot.

    (ok it's a dum Action movie but i'd say it has a 45% chance of be'ing good)

    Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas re-released onOctober 20,Plot OutlineJack Skellington, king of Halloweentown, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn't quite understand the concept

    ( old movie but a good movie 100% chance of be'ing good)

    Saw III October 27 Tagline: Sometimes Rules Are Meant To Be Broken.

    Plot Outline: Jigsaw kidnaps a doctor to keep him alive while he watches his new apprentice put an unlucky citizen through a brutal test.

    (it well be a sum what good/sad time wen and if i go see saw3 cuz saw2 wus the fist movie i saw W my X-GF but you no how it go's i givie it 89% chance of be'ing good)

    (ok it's a remake but it's got Sid Haig in it from HO1000Cand The Devil's Rejects and it's in 3D so i'd say it has a 85%chance of be'ing good)

    007 Casino Royale November 17
    Plot Outline: James Bond's first mission, where he must stop a banker from winning a casino tournament and using the prize money to fund terrorist activities.
    ( id say it has a 77% chance of be'ing good)

    The absence of The Departed, Running With Scissors, The Fountain, and Casino Royale makes me sad.

    That said, the only movie on your list I have even a mild interest in seeing is Borat. Slasher movies (Texas, Saw) just aren't really my thing, and the rest are just generic come-out-every-year movies. Save for Nightmare at least.

    I would also say that Texas really doesn't have that much of a chance of being good at all, but that's just me.

    Oh, yea, and Happy Feet. You left off Happy Feet.
    Praise be to Nero's Neptune,
    The Titanic sails at dawn,
    And everybody's shouting,
    "Which Side Are You On?"

    And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot,
    Fighting in the captain's tower,
    While calypso singers laugh at them,
    And fishermen hold flowers.
    Between the windows of the sea,
    Where lovely mermaids flow,
    And nobody has to think too much,
    About Desolation Row.

    I agree on three of them, but I have to say I think Running will suck. If its the one I'm thinking of ( the one by the person who did Eternal Sunshine, right?) it looks like another vein attempt to be intellectual, similar to Sunshine.

    Well, I think Texas, just like most of the other movies he mentioned, will be slasher-good, not good-good. I know you said that slashers arent your thing, and thats cool, but you have to remember that slasher-good means that, no matter the story or acting, the more blood, breasts, and brutality the better. I think TCM will deliver all that and more with just a dash of hilarity, similar to the first one.

    I actually really liked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but I think you might be confusing Running with something else. It's a Ryan Murphy directed film based on the like-titled memoir by Augusten Burroughs.
